Its been a while since I've posted a Nail of the Day post hasn't it. Oops! I've been through a patch of not really painting them much, but I was lured back into the nail varnish world recently by the I'mperfection range from Illamasqua and caved in and bought the pretty purple shade, Speckle.
The varnish itself gives good coverage and takes just two coats to gain full opacity and get a nice deep speckled look, it also sits very flat on the nail considering the glitter content and feels fairly smooth to touch. I do recommend a top coat though so that any little bits that do stick up aren't a problem.
I painted my nails with this a couple of days before a shift at Lush and found that for day to day wear it wore very well, but as soon as I was working and had my hands in and out of water all day, it did begin to chip pretty badly, even with the topcoat so if you have a job where your hands take quite a battering I'm afraid this won't be all that long lasting.
Price wise, it isn't cheap at £14.50 a bottle but for me I saw it as a bit of a special, one off buy for a polish that is fairly unique and also limited edition so I was able to justify it to myself :)
What do you think of my pretty new polish? Is it something you'll be picking up? The other colours in the range are blue, pink, green and brown. I'm soo tempted to pick up blue and pink if they're still in stock when I get paid!
